Please ignore my previous post. Apparently I had not consumed sufficient
quantities of coffee before responding.

		Ed, it appears to me to be a Dative of Advantage where the
noun benefits or
		suffers from the action. In English this would often be
translated "on
		behalf of" or simply "for". Rev 21:2 may be of similar
formation "adorned
		for the sake of her husband."

				Some friends and I are reading the book of
Galatians. But we
		are puzzled as
				to the function of UMAS in 4:11. It is an
accusative but we
		are not sure how
				to translate it. What use of the accusative
is this? Any
		guidance that
				anyone can offer would be most appreciated.
Thank you.
